Because I shorted everyone on the Rosemary show (at only about 15 minutes) and the fact that I had to work today (Saturday) I decided to hammer out another show I’ve had on my mind for a while.
So, in this episode I talk about these three tools that I think increase self-sufficiency:
1. Soil Blocker
Helps you avoid buying tons of peat pots or peat pellets. Makes hardening off and transplanting tons easier.
2. Fiskars Tiller
Helps you avoid a gas powered tiller when you need to break up soil a bit for root crops such as carrots. This tool also prevents the destratification of soil because it only breaks the soil instead of churning it.
3. Planting Bar or Dibbler
Helps you properly space your seeds without loosening the soil at all. Helps you avoid making weeds.
And one tool that I think has no place in a self-sufficient garden!
1. Soil sensors
Why do you need a computer to tell you what your soil is like? STICK YOUR HAND IN THE SOIL! Sorry, had to do that!
